    Noticed some cats hanging around a car for a couple of nights meowing. Anyhow thought I would investigate and went over. 3 of the cats made a run for like you would expect but one just stayed sat underneath the car not moving a muscle which looked a little older.

    i assume the older one sat under car is the mother cat, possibly sick or injured and the other 3 are it’s offspring on guard duty.

    Anyhow, is there much that can be done, rspca?

    Put some food and water out for it? Chicken or white fish.

    Can’t take them in and likely wouldn’t trust me anyway plus we have our own cat.

    Will give it a few hours and if still there will put some food / water out.

    Take it to McDonald's.

    If you do feed it, they will be back for more.

    Call the RSPCA, Cats Protection or you local animal sanctuary. They will try and catch it and re-home where possible or return if they're chipped.

    As placidcasual says contact your local cat sanctuary if you don't want to take it in yourself. With any luck they'll find it a home.

    I never hear good things about the RSPCA - it seems they tend to put the animal down over seeking other options. Local cat sanctuary is probably best

    I did the sensible thing as recommended and ate the sick cat.

    If it's feral they won't try to rehome it. But you don't really want them wondering around and breeding.

    On a serious note, seems the cat is fine.

    Seems like there was some sort cat cabal going on with weird cat noises and 3 younger cats worshipping the the larger older cat. They moved on shortly, and last night they were doing the same thing under another car.

    The cat i thought was sick because it didnt move, turns out just didnt give a **** about me and was chilling.

    Cat under car most likely female. She will be in season.
